Leeds United vs West Bromwich Albion match preview

The 3rd round of fixtures of the Championship campaign is set to be kicked into gear at Elland Road this Friday, August 18th.

The matchup in question will see Leeds United act as hosts, in a meeting with West Bromwich Albion.

Beginning with the former, Leeds, for their part, are fresh off an altogether underwhelming start to the season.

After being forced to battle their way back to a last-gasp share of the spoils in an opening day meeting with Cardiff City, last time out, Daniel Farke’s troops made the trip to St. Andrew’s, for a meeting with Birmingham City.

And it was an injury-time strike which ultimately decided proceedings once more.

On this occasion, though, it was Leeds who were left crestfallen, as a Lukas Jutkiewicz spot-kick proved enough to hand Birmingham all three points.

Leeds, as a result, sit 19th in England’s 2nd tier, with just a solitary point to show for their efforts.

Turning attentions towards Friday’s visitors to west Yorkshire, West Brom’s campaign actually got off to an even worse start than their upcoming hosts.

This came as an opening day trip to Blackburn Rovers saw the Baggies condemned to the wrong side of a 2-1 result.

Carlos Corberan’s men, though, to their credit, secured a swift bounce-back victory last time out.

Welcoming Swansea City to The Hawthorns, West Brom raced out to a three-goal lead inside the opening hour of action, owing to strikes on the part of Semi Ajayi and John Swift, either side of a Carl Rushworth own goal.

And though the day’s visitors did set pulses racing in pulling two goals back late on, Corberan and co. ultimately held out for a hard-fought first win of the term.

So, all of this considered, how do we at 101 envision Friday’s events unfolding at Elland Road?

We are backing an eventual stalemate, featuring goals from both Leeds United and West Bromwich Albion.
